But Hopes are Shy Birds flying at a great distance seldom reached by the best of Guns.
John James Audubon
Bullies are often people who are shy and can't make friends easily, so, as the theme of the movie 'A Bronx Tale' tells us, it is better to be feared if you can't be loved.

You get tough when you grow up unloved. People described me as a boyish girl - rather shy, but I didn't show it. I had an attitude. I was rather wild.

I'm very shy really. I spend a lot of time in my room alone reading or writing or watching television.

My husband and I have known each other since kindergarten. I had a crush on him in school, but we never dated.

And there's a safety in that.
Well, a lot of people don't know this about me, but I'm actually shy around people I don't know. I would just say with my first concert, my first tour, I didn't really talk onstage. I was like, 'Thank you, I love you guys,' or whatever. But now I've just kind of learned to work a crowd.
